A 4000 hour experiment, conducted in late 1992 through mid 1993, confirmed earlier results on the ultraviolet damage effects in covered solar cells of various types being used, or proposed for use, in INTELSAT programs. Two different UV test systems were used to identify systematic errors and to study the effects of UV source-bulb age on degradation rate. After correction for contamination and UV source-bulb aging, the extrapolated degradation rates for irradiated and unirradiated INTELSAT-5, -6 single AR(SAR) coated cells and INTELSAT-7, -7A, -8 double layer AR(DAR) coated cells in both the 1993 tests confirm the following hypotheses resulting from the 1992 experiment. (a) Irradiated cells display significantly more UV degradation than do the unirradiated cells for tests exceeding 2000 hours. The new data indicates that degradation effects from electron irradiation are proportional to t(exp 2) (the square of the UV hours), at least for times less than or equal to 3000 hours. (b) This difference does not depend upon entire reflective coating, cell resistivity, or manufacturer within the sensitivity and reproducibility of the experiment. (c) There is a clear difference in degradation rate between single AR coated cells (TiO(x)) and double layer AR coated cells (SiO(x) and Al2O3?). At 100,000 hours (11.4 years) the DAR coated cells display more degradation than do the SAR coated cells, even though at 1,000 hours the DAR cells display less degradation. (d) UV degradation rates, to modern covered silicon solar cells, at the beginning of bulb life drop from approximately 2 times the average rate to near zero after 2000 hours (average end-of-life for the xenon short-arc lamps used in the tests). The effects of 1 MeV electron irradiation (10(exp 15) e(-)/sq cm) prior to UV exposure are clearly indicated in the plot of percent change in cell open circuit voltage (Voc) versus percent change in short circuit current (Isc) during the UV test and post-test cleanup of the cells. Clearly, extended UV testing produces a permanent photo-induced redegradation of previously irradiated cells. However, this photo-induced redegradation may be caused by the long-wavelength light, not the UV light.
